ELECTRO-QUEER

Lotic + Faka + DJ Haram

ELECTRO-QUEER
7th of July
10:00 PM

* Finished

Coinciding with the Pride celebrations in Madrid, we are going to dedicate an evening to sound creation produced from different political gender perspectives. Three avant-garde musical proposals in which electronic music and the way in which the artists present themselves on the stage become a vehicle for social and cultural activism in favour of diversity.

Lotic is the DJ and producer J’Kerian Morgan, born in Houston, Texas and now based in Berlin. Of African descent, Lotic has created a multi-layered character from an intergender positioning. The music he produces has made him one of the benchmarks of queer electronics, even though its myriad facets and influences make it hard to put a label on it.

Faka is a group of South African musicians, performers and activists, set up by Fela Gucci and Desire Marea. This duo endeavours to redefine and shed light on LGBT culture and identity in South Africa today. As far as their music is concerned, they offer a fusion of folk music with religious reminiscences and their country’s most innovative electronic trends, which has been called gqom, a kind of African house music born in the streets of Durban.

DJ Haram is a producer and DJ from New Jersey, currently based in Philadelphia. She forms part of Discwoman, a platform of artists who are fighting for female empowerment in the world of electronic music. She endeavours to expand the boundaries of club music with an experimental attitude, while paying tribute to her origins by integrating Middle Eastern dance music into her mixes.

In collaboration with Matadero Madrid – Centre for Contemporary Creation
